On September 15 2017, I was the photographer for a fashion workshop about wearable electronics at Nottingham Trent University, run by Angharad Maclaran for her researchers; some staff were present, as well as PhD students (Advanced Textiles students and Engineering students). You can view my photos from this event here.
At the beginning of the workshop, everyone was introduced, as well as the subject matter. The ‘electric’ bra photographed below was bought on Amazon to conduct the teardown as part of the department’s research into wearable electronics.
As this was my first experience of both an electronic and clothing teardown, I made notes throughout the workshop and conducted research into the subject afterwards to deepen my understanding.
A company mentioned mentioned by Angharad is iFixit, who post free-to-access teardowns of a wide variety of electronics to encourage the public to try to fix misworning devices rather than to replace them.
